Well, the CT scan showed not only diverticulosis (a small pouch pushed in my colon, but not infected) but also a burst ovarian cyst and extra fluid in my abdomen. No wonder this week sucked. (And Lambeth, before you say it, neither had anything to do with my over-reaching my abilities!)
The irony is that diverticulosis is caused by a low-fiber diet, something I had mainly because of the surgery--I was told a bland diet, which is defined as having no whole grains, very cooked vegetables, etc., --not my usual beans and broccoli and cabbage!
Time to go back to my mostly vegetarian routine. I'll consult a GI specialist and my GYN just to be sure we're doing everything we can.
But my surgery incision, etc., looks good. And that is no small thing to be grateful for.
